Do Startups Need to Care about Operations in the Cloud?
Many startups have gotten off to a great start with minimal to no “operations” personnel – truly living a DevOps experience, where the people building the software are the ones running it. In time, as a service grows, it may become necessary to bring in specialists that focus on the reliability and capability of the platforms that deliver our applications. Just because we use cloud services does not eliminate the need to consider some operational expertise. Site Reliability Engineering is a growing discipline focused on applying software engineering principals and patterns to building reliable platforms for delivering our services. Azure and services hosted on Azure are one of the many organizations exploring this updated field of operations and how it interacts with, complements, and conflicts with strong DevOps cultures.Topics:
